SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
I can help you a little or a lot. Whether it’s one cupboard or your whole home, I’ll teach you how to get rid of clutter – for good!
My service is a good match for you if you are:
✓ Ready (and I mean ready!) for change – we’ll identify bad habits and create new systems
✓ Seriously committed to dramatically reducing your clutter so you can say goodbye to it forever!
✓ Willing and open to learning new tools and habits that will help you become more organised
✓ Up for getting stuck in as well! And who knows, you might even enjoy yourself 😉
Some people work best with a lot of support and guidance; some like to learn the basics and adopt a more DIY approach. We all have different lifestyles, different routines, different ‘problem areas’ of our homes (and lives!) so I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. My service is bespoke so that means we’ll create a plan as unique as you are.
There are lots of decluttering methods but many of them miss a vital piece of the puzzle. If you’ve tried to ‘get organised’ before but find the clutter keeps coming back then it’s not because you’re not capable. If you want real, long-lasting success with decluttering then we need to discover why you have clutter in the first place.
As well as creating a gorgeous home you love living in, my program can help you:
✓ Understand your personal clutter triggers to prevent it coming back
✓ Organise your stuff in a way that works for you and suits your lifestyle
✓ Feel more inspired, assertive and confident when it comes to making decisions
✓ Conquer overwhelm, overcome perfectionism and stop procrastinating
01 // Plan
Before we begin, we’ll come up with a plan that’s aligned with your vision, the space you have to work with and any timescales or budgets you might have.
02 // Evaluate
We’ll sort through any rooms or areas of your home that cause you stress and go through each item. This step is a bit like taking inventory of everything you own.
03 // Declutter
We’ll work out what items you truly need and love. We’ll throw away any obvious rubbish, and arrange to give unwanted items away or recycle where possible.
04 // Style
Once we’re left with everything you’re keeping, we’ll style and organise it in a way that works for your home and lifestyle. We’ll create systems and storage if needed.
As we go along we’ll be looking at your routine and habits so we can create a system that fits with your lifestyle. I’ll teach you some easy to learn tricks and tips so you can stay on top of your newly created beautiful home to make sure the clutter doesn’t pile up again.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
If you’re ready to start feeling large and in charge of your clutter, get in touch so we can arrange a free consultation to talk about what you need. I’ll come and meet you at your home so I can see your space and we can see if we’re a good match to work together. After we’ve discussed your requirements, I’ll provide you with a quote and we’ll go from there.
CAN I LEAVE YOU TO DECLUTTER FOR ME?
Because your clutter is unique to you, it’s vital that you are actively involved for the process to work properly. You won’t get the same results from hiring someone to organise your stuff for you which is why you can’t just hire me to declutter your things without you there. I am very hands on and love to be involved, but for you to remain organised after a ‘sort out’, the organisational structure needs to be intuitively tailored to suit your needs, wishes and lifestyle.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The time each project takes to complete varies according to how much clutter you have to sort through. Everybody works at a different speed so how long it takes essentially comes down to how quickly you can make decisions. I’ll support you to make decisions aligned with your goals and as you practise being decisive you’ll find you get quicker! I’ll work alongside you throughout the whole process so that things get done in the shortest amount of time.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Again, this will vary depending on how long the project takes to finish. Hourly rates start from £30 per hour but I offer discounts for bigger blocks of time. The best thing to do is to contact me to arrange a quote.
WILL I NEED TO BUY LOADS OF FANCY NEW STORAGE?
We won’t even look at buying anything new until we’ve completed the decluttering process. Once we have organised everything, we’ll assess your current storage. From here I can advise if it’s working optimally for your space or if you would benefit from new storage solutions or organising products. If you’re happy with your current storage and you have enough, then we can normally work with what you’ve got. People are often surprised when they realise that often they don’t need more storage, they just need less stuff!
WILL YOU MAKE ME THROW EVERYTHING AWAY?
Not at all! I’ll advise you if I think something isn’t working well for you but the final decision to get rid of something always lies with you. However, if you are reluctant to throw anything away then my service probably isn’t suitable for you.
SHOULD I TIDY UP BEFORE YOU GET HERE?
No! In fact, please don’t. For this to work properly, it’s really beneficial for me to see your home in its honest state so I can pinpoint what’s not working and come up with tailored solutions (no judging, I promise!)
